a style of expressive dance that combines elements
of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical
and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.
The style of Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Many Contemporary dancers focus on floor work, using gravity to pull them down to the floor. While some contemporary dancers create characters, theatrical events, or stories, others perform entirely new creations as they improvise in their own unique style.
Our classes have proved to enhance the student’s ability and confidence during their contemporary dance studies. We strongly recommend any students studying GCSE or A Level dance to join us.

My friend made me go to adult ballet, and now I never miss a class. I love dancing with all the other dancers and the teachers make the classes so exciting. Would recommend everyone to join this class.
Both my daughters have loved dancing at The Dance Factory. I wouldn't let them dance anywhere else! Miss Katy and her team are wonderful and very talented.
I have danced with Miss Katy since the Dance Factory started. I think I have danced in every class. I love all the classes and all the teachers.
